On first blush, it might resemble
that other handset
with its large touchscreen, but don’t be fooled. The LG phone has been in development concurrently with Apple’s offering. It too has a 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and uses EDGE; it does have a few more actual buttons though, including those for calling and hanging up. While it doesn’t rock the Wi-Fi, it can play audio and video, as well as access your Microsoft Office documents. It also doesn’t have any internal storage, relying entirely on microSD cards.
The pricetag on this baby is around €600 (that’s ~$776). That’s okay, as its tri-band GSM is short the 850MHz frequency, which is one of the two used in the US. Perhaps a Quad-Band version will make its way here someday. Someday…
